There are four major changes to the skills system in Pathfinder compared to Dungeons & Dragons Edition 3.5. Smaller changes changes also exist with some skill descriptions
- Some skills from 3.5 were dropped and consolidated in Pathfinder according to the following table.
|3.5 Skill||Pathfinder Skill|
|Open Lock||Disable Device|
- A character always gets the same number of skill ranks, rather than starting with a large number at 1st level. Instead, the following system is employed.
Skill Skill Check is Equal To
Untrained 1d20 + Ability modifier + racial modifier
Trained 1d20 + Skill ranks + ability modifier +racial modifier
Trained Class Skill 1d20 + Skill ranks + ability modifier + racial modifier + 3
Armor check penalty applies to all Strength and Dexterity-based skill checks.
- There is no penalty to purchase skills not listed as class skills. All ranks are purchased equally. The benefit to purchasing a class skills comes with its use, as shown above.
- There are no synergy bonuses in Pathfinder.
